27 Oct Chris & Leroy’s wedding
The last few months were busy with travel and work, so it is time to blog again. A while ago I was asked to photograph my friends Chris and Leroy’s wedding, which I agreed to do happily. And so back in September I took my Fuji X cameras (two XT2 bodies) with 35mm f2 and f1.4, 50mm f2 and 56mm f1.2 and had a fantastic day and experience of shooting the whole wedding. Here is a small selection, which reflects the day as a story in my head. I also had X100f with me but barely used it as 23mm (35mm in FF) is just not my focal length. Before the day I covered as much as I could on wedding photography resources, but my main aim was to try to capture those unstaged and unplanned moments, which can build up the emotional memory of the day. All shots were made with available light and manual focusing, using f2 lenses during the day and switching to f1.2 and f1.4 lenses in the evening. I do not need to write here how fantastic Fujifilm X cameras are for documentary wedding style so I will leave the images to speak for themselves. As for myself – I had a very emotional and educational day behind the lens with every minute of it being fantastic. Thank you Chris and Leroy for trusting me with your big day! Andro
